the accomplishment, and the Journal

Would Like to See Her Birth-Place.
The Journal has an interesting
letter from Miss Lily Belle Jessup,
Spencer, lowa. Miss Lily was born
here in 1888, her father, Rev. E. C.
Jessup, being pastor of the German
Lutheran Church at that time. The
family soon after moved to Chicago
and have since lived in other places
and States. She knows nothing of her
birth-place except what she has heard
from her mother and father, but hopes
some day to enjoy the pleasure of see
ing the town for herself. Anyway,
she tenders “warmest wishes for the
complete success of the great celebra
tion in August, next.” Her father is
pastor of a church in Cedar Rapids,
lowa, and Miss Lily expects to make
her own home in that city after June
A city or town, like a horse, should

aim of every resident to make his

The story of a permanent cure.
Mrs. William J. Thomas, 70 Bowery
street, Frostburg, Md., says: “Doan’s
Kidney Pills certainly did me a
wonderful amonnt of good. I take
pleasure in confirming the statement
I gave in their praise in 1907. I had
a great deal of trouble from my back
and there were pains in my loins
when I moved in bed. My kidneys
were in bad shape and I was unable
to get anything that would help me
until I procured Doan’s Kidney Pills.
They brought me entire relief in a

Excellent Financial Report.
The annual meeting of the Equi

held Tuesday evening, and the di
rectorate was organized for the cur
rent year as follows:
President —Howard Hitchins.
Vice-President —Dr. J. M. Price.
Secretary and Attorney —Clayton
Treasurer —J. B. Oder.
Directors —William C. Devecmon,

From the report elsewhere printed
it will be seen that of the gross profits
—58,388.82, the sum of $7,360.65 con
stitutes 6 per cent, of the capital in
vested for the entire year.
Of the latter sum nearly one-half
goes back to the borrowing stock
holders—a feature which obtains un
der no other system.
Hence, last year, as in all previous
years, the Society illustrates practi
cally the feasibility of a borrower ob
taining interest on the money with
which he pays a debt.
Numerous Gasoline Fires.
This year’s automobile season is
starting out with more than the usual
number of gasoline fires, doubtless
caused by the increasing use of the
very volatile gasoline compressed from
During the past few weeks there has
been in Pittsburg at least a half dozen
such fires, several destroying single
automobiles, while others destroyed
private garages and their contents,
and two of them destroying large
public garages, entailing a loss in
each case of approximately $40,000.
It is a very significant fact that not
one of these fires was traced to the
use of gasoline which had been guar
anteed by the seller to be made from
Crude Oil, all being caused by the use
of gasoline that was known to be a
product of natural gas, or gasoline that
was sold by refiners who declined to
guarantee that it was not made in
part, at least, from compressed natur
The price of this gasoline com
pressed from natural gas is very
low, and, therefore, there is consider
able incentive to economize in this re
spect, even at the expense of safety.
Gasoline refined from Crude Oil is
far from being a safe article, but it
cannot be compared with the product
of natural gas any more than ordinary
rifle powder can be compared with
